Final Portrait Class

Final day of portrait class today.  Worked more on the hair and details in the features.  I opted to leave the shirt undone as that would have taken me the whole 3 hours to shade it in!

Portrait - Day 3

Vine Charcoal on 18x24 Mi-teintes paper
Day 3 of portrait class, only one more day!  I need to work on the values in the face and model it some more.  If I have time, I'll add some values on the chest and t-shirt.

Egg Study 1

Oil on 6x6 Canvas

I started doing some egg studies as I'm trying to work on the turning of the egg and the subtle changes in value and temperature.  An egg and a human head have a very similar shape!

Art meets Heart - Benefiting the Art Garage in Green Bay, WI

The unveiling of the heart for "Art meets Heart" happened last week in Green Bay.  It looks great and it will hang at the airport for the next year!  Below was my submission.  All paintings are 6x6.  You can find mine in the lower middle, about 7 rows up from the bottom.

Portrait Day 1 and other Academy works

Today was day 1 of a 4 day portrait class that we have every Tuesday.  The first day is always tough as you try to figure out the proportions and don't really have time to start modeling the face. 
Below are some other Academy works from the past few weeks, a few charcoals, one graphite and one watercolor value study:
